You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Wie's aussieht im [ewigen]1 Freudenhain, 
  Im Himmel, dem hohen, da [oben]2, 
Das wissen die [Kindlein, die kleinen, allein]3, 
  Sie kommen ja grade von [droben]4.

Doch sie können's nicht sagen, unmündig und klein,
  Sie müssen's verschweigen indessen:
Und wachsen heran sie und plaudern sie fein,
  Dann haben sie's leider vergessen.

Der Bauer steht vor seinem Feld
Und zieht die Stirne kraus in Falten:
"Ich hab' den Acker wohl bestellt,
Auf reine Aussaat streng gehalten;
Nun seh' mir eins das Unkraut an!
Das hat der böse Feind getan.

Da kommt sein Knabe hochbeglückt,
Mit bunten Blüten reich beladen;
Im Felde hat er sie gepflückt;
Kornblumen sind es, Mohn und Raden;
Er jauchzt: "Sieg, Vater, nur die Pracht!
Die hat der liebe Gott gemacht.
